Home Headmaster

From Wednesday to Sunday last week, I attended the annual SAHISA (Southern  African Heads of Independent Schools Association) conference.  This was an excellent conference and also a wonderful opportunity to discuss issues of common interest with the Heads of other Independent schools.  Unfortunately, this conference clashed with our annual Arts Festival this year which was a great pity.  However, I am told that, despite the cold and wet weather, the Arts Festival was a resounding success. Thank you to our festival and theatre staff for their hard work in organizing this event, and to all the other staff who volunteered their assistance over the weekend.  Thank you, too, to all parents who supported this wonderful event.

Last week I reported that Arthur Cook had been awarded the President’s Award Gold Standard. This week I am thrilled to report that Andrea Tonelli has also been awarded the Gold Standard.  I congratulate him on this outstanding achievement.

With the holidays fast approaching, please could I remind all ‘out of country’ parents to ensure that you have all the necessary immigration documents in order before you send your son back  to school next term.  To be safe, please provide your son with a new affidavit (from both parents) giving him permission to travel into South Africa.  We will send updated copies of the necessary school documents home with them at the end of this term.

We look forward to seeing you at Speech Day on Friday.  Tea will be served from 08:45 and Speech Day proceedings begin at 09:30.
